To help you choose which particular courses, assessments, and books will be most relevant to your specialized needs and/or the needs of your clients, Dr. Ralph Kilmann has prepared his recommendations especially to suit your primary or preferred occupational identity—which he summarizes in the following way:
When two or more people are facing especially difficult, emotional, and highly consequential conflicts, a mediator can either be assigned or contracted to help opposing people/parties develop a more satisfactory solution—without having to litigate the outcome or be subject to an external arbitration process or administrative procedure that might not satisfy either party. Naturally, mediators must be highly skilled in handling very distressing conflicts.
If you would like to take our 3 TKI-based courses in conflict resolution, you can purchase The TKI Package at a discount. Then, for 6 months, you’ll have access to all 12 hours of course videos, 3 course manuals (222 pages), and 2 TKI assessments. This package is a great choice for trainers, consultants, coaches, mediators, therapists, and peacebuilders who wish to gain mastery of the TKI assessment for applications with individuals, couples, groups, organizations, institutions, and nations. To earn our esteemed “Certification for the Thomas-Kilmann Instrument,” you must pass three Final Exams: (1) BASIC Training, (2) GROUP Training, and (3) ADVANCED Training in Conflict Management.
